Alfred R. Nunamaker began painting at the age of 12 and first exhibited at the age of 14 at Phillips Mill. His tutelage began under his father, painter Kenneth Nunamaker, who had brought his family to the New Hope area in 1923. The influence of the New Hope impressionists on Alfred Nunamaker, particularly his father, was strong. He specialized in landscapes and seascapes with particular interest in snow and nocturnal scenes. He worked with George Sotter in his stained glass studio in New Hope for two years. As a commercial artist, he worked in Philadelphia with Hoedt Studio, and later at his own commercial art studio in Philadelphia, working on national and international advertising accounts.
